San Gabriel River Trail

The San Gabriel River trail extends 38 miles starting at a Ranger Station at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains and ending at the Pacific Ocean (Seal Beach). David, Shifty, and I decided to explore this trail this Sunday afternoon and what an awesome ride it was. We started off at the top of the trail near the San Gabriel Mountains and rode down about 12 miles to about the junction point of the 10 and 605 freeways.

Looking south on the trail, right past the Santa Fe Dam.

It's crazy how many people live along the edge of the river. You can tell there was some one living in these pipes.

We also came across a bunch of families who were also out for a Sunday afternoon ride.

Shifty and me throwing up the deuce.

At the half way point, taking a break.

Looking north on the trail towards our starting point. Time to ride up to where we started.

This was a great 1st ride along this trail. We knocked about 23 miles, in about 2 hours. The plan is to ride ALL the way down to Long Beach this Friday. It's going to be about a 60 mile round trip. It's going to be awesome, or a big mistake. If you want to join us on any rides, just hit me up and we'll make it happen.
